"As someone who believe Torres should be left alone to play shortstop, I approve of the Yankees not making the qualifying offer to Gregorius. It’s a boon for Didi as well, who would be the kind of tweener free agent most likely to be hurt by QO compensation. There are more than a few good places he could land on some kind of 2/20 deal -- Milwaukee, Cincinnati -- and failing that, he’d be one of the best players on the league’s bad teams. His days as a three-win player are probably over, though."
